These are excellent take-off wheels from the original vehicles. Once we acquire them, they are inspected and tested for true roundness and balance properties. After approved, they are stripped, treated and their face is refinished to their original presentation so they would look like brand new.
Yes! If your other wheels still have their original factory finish. Keep in mind that the color wheel may vary a shade from yours because of the fact that it looks new in its presentation against your current weathered wheels, but the color tone matches your originals.
We take the manufacturer’s color codes from the publications made to that fact (the same codes you have on that sticker at your vehicle’s door). We feed the code to a computerized multicolor mixer that mixes and produces the original shade of that color that the manufacturer has used.
We test all original wheels in case they need straightening or centering. All wheels undergo a surface preparation eliminating any imperfections. Next we machine or colorize and coat the face of the wheel and rim and apply a protective clear coating. Finally, we re-test after refinishing.
We purchase take-off factory wheels from our customers through a very successful rim exchange program, from distributors of OEM rims and car dealerships.
Cosmetic damage due to their natural use and wear, like curb rash, peels or strikes. We found that only 6.4% of the wheels received are out of round or may be bent in the inner drum. Being a very easy fix, the machines will take care of that problem in few minutes, before they are submitted to a very detail refinishing process. The result is a round, strong, newly resurfaced wheel that balances as intended. We do not accept cracked wheels.
Well, it’s impossible to tell you without seeing the wheel. Cracks, bends, breaks, strikes, scratches, curb rash and most damage to your wheels can be repaired. Unfortunately structural damage, specially on the center of the wheel can’t be repaired enough to produce a safe wheel.
